Eleanor was amazing. My kids were so excited when she arrived and she instantly hit it off with them. She got the 2 oldest (5 and 2) off to bed and even fed and settled the baby (1) when he woke later that night. The kids woke asking for her and begging for her to come and play again. I'd highly recommend her.

Jane helped me at very short notice when one of my children got sick in the first week of my new job. Jane was not only friendly and easy to deal with, but when the after-school nanny also called in sick, Jane stayed on until I got home from work at 5.30pm. She even did baking! Saved me in a crisis, couldn't recommend more.

I also have experience in coding and computer science, as I’ve written reports on compression, software engineering techniques, network protocols..etc, and coded websites for businesses with MySQL databases. While in year 13, my school provided me the opportunity to study university computer science papers, which I got A+ in. I use python for programming. At school, I was an IT Crowd, code club, and science club leader, so I taught classes of students how to code from scratch, hoping to enter them in national coding competitions.

Tapping into their imagination at a young age enables them to look beyond the surface and draw conclusions that expand their cognitive development.

I have been tutoring for over a year now from primary school age through to high school. I put focus on the students maths goals and ambitions by identifying the gaps and uncertainties in their understanding of maths. The prime objective of my tutoring is to instill the maths confidence into the student to develop their competence enabling them to further their studies in the future. Maths requires countless practice in order to achieve a maths logical way of thinking. This is the key to unlocking their potential.
